When we moved to Charlotte from Miami 17 years ago, new warm clothes shopping was in order. I found for my husband this flannel work shirt for $5 at a Dillard's sale. For some reason, he really took to the shirt and wore it almost every time he worked in the yard. It became a joke...I would say..."sure like your shirt".,.the same shirt all the time!!..This shirt lasted 17 years. In November he brought it to me to repair with this rip down the back. I just couldn't fix it. It was certainly the best $5 I ever spent. I picked out a replacement for him from his closet and pondered the beloved shirt.
Here it resurfaces in his Christmas present...a mug rug for his tea:)
A five dollar shirt for a million dollar man:)
